Just a short walk from Red Square across the river you come across this park. There are many entrances to it and a host of things to do. There is a false beach on a small lake where you can also rent pedal boats. There are a number of other lakes where the locals sit and dangle their feet in... More

This place was great. We spent our Sunday afternoon chilling in the park. Drinks at one of the restaurants, then wondered through watch a music club, skateboarding, water with fountains to classical music - such a fun place on a lovely day.

This park was recently renovated to remove the rides and make it more like a relaxing place. The park is very huge and has lots of stuff, fountains, eateries, table tennis, swimming pool, exhibitions etc. If you want to relax in the evening this is the place to be. There is no entry fee, grab a bicycle or roller skates... More

This is a big park. Like central park in NYC. Still under construction. We just walked around a little so we could say we went. Many "average russians" there, so that was interesting to people watch. Many brides being photographed. :)

We let the kids off the leash here and enjoyed the extensive play area. Walk along the river, flowers in bloom, saw skateboarders doing their thing and went for lunch in arts house across the road.

Beautiful uncomplicated park along the river. In a cool hip part of Moscow. Plenty of things for children and adults to enjoy. Lucked out when there was a food festival happening. Offering many options of delicious street food. Lovely day as well!

The graveyard of communist monuments. Very interesting to see the leadership together. The statues have been removed and put together as a remembrance. Especially impressive is the monument by Chubarov "Victims of Totalitarian Regimes„

I really liked this amazing pretty huge park next to the river. You can rent a bicycle, roller skates etc, play table tennis or volley ball or just have a walk. There are many great cafes and restaurants. I had food in a place called Sekta Cafe. It was really good. Fresh, local, creative and many vegetarian choices.

I have no idea how big this park is but it is huge! It has activities for everyone, it's clean, the flowers and roses are stunning to see and there is plenty of choices if you want food or a drink. Fountains, boating lake, sculptures etc. Again another place you can sit and watch time go by!
